According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, between 2009 and 2011 small businesses – defined as those firms with less than 500 employees – accounted for 67% of new jobs. Small businesses provide 43% of high-tech employment. Typically about 50% of all new businesses survive five years or more and approximately 30% last for ten years or longer (http://sba.gov/advocacy).
Small businesses are vital for bringing growth and innovation to their communities.
Small businesses matter.
